personally, I haven't seen any improvement yet, although today the doctor did use a higer setting. It seems like it needs a long time for actual scars to improve in colour, so I will just proceed to hyaluronic acid after my IPL treatment is over (2 sessions left).

yeah it all depends on the machine that they are using as well. the place i go to now uses the polamar starlux max g and the lady had it on a super high setting and she did 3 passes on each scar. i got super super red and had some swelling but it was gone in 2 days. i got more results with this new machine with 1 treatment than i did with 3 treatments at the old place i used to go to. in 5 days i could see the results. i have noticed it works better when they dont use the cool gel as well. i forget what the reasoning is but something about the cold gel that doesnt let the ipl penetrate as far into the skin. the place i used to go to never used the gel then they started using it and i didnt see as good of results so i dont go there anymore. the key though is multiple passes if they only go over the area once your arent going to see results very quickly at all. it would take so much longer.

Thanks, I'm going to ask for the highest setting. I can only afford one treatment for a while... Wanna get the most out of one!

It's today!!

It went fine, felt a slight pinch/suck and she did 2 passes. I'll see what happens in a few weeks.

cool you should see some good results from that for sure. if you do another one and have them do 3 passes you will see even more results. keep me updated.
